One Step At a Time
From Runner’s World:
David Clark used to rely on Vicodin, Percocet, or codeine—chased with Johnny Walker—to get through the day. The addict had lost an $8 million mattress company, weighed 320 pounds, was prediabetic, and had blood pressure so dangerously high that his doctor said, “You may have a stroke within the hour.”
From We Are Superman:
At 34 he reinvented himself, climbed out of the basement of life and to the top of the ultra-running world. Clark is now a nationally renowned speaker, bestselling author, gym owner and former American record holder.
I learned about David Clark just a couple of months ago. I heard him promoting his podcast and after I learned his story, I knew that I could learn a lot from him.
David is a runner. Not one of those runners that participates in 5k or a 10k run sometimes or one of those runners that goes out for a run 3-5 times a week or even one of those runners that runs a marathon or 2 every year.
David is an ultramarathoner, he does large scale races that are 100 miles or more in length that have dozens of people start and less than half of them quit before they even get to the half way point.
To the regular person, a race like this would seem impossible. It seems even more impossible for a guy that used to weigh 320 lbs but David Clark has done it. Several times.
David Clark has done the impossible.

We Are Superman
When I heard that he had a podcast, I wanted to know more about it. It’s one of those things that I didn’t know much about but I hoped I would like it. David’s podcast is called We Are Superman.
The whole idea behind the title to David’s podcast is that we all have a gift (a super power) that no one else has but the world needs. If we are able to find out what our gift is and harness it, then we can finally be living our purpose in life.
The podcast is still new and as of this blog post, he only has a 5 (or less) episodes. In each episode he interviews someone that has found their super power and let’s them discuss their story. The only interviews that I have listened to are with David and other ultramarathoners like himself. It’s obvious by listening to them, that they have found their super power.
Their super power is never running like many would think it is, their super power is usually a gift from with in like persistence or mindset.
What’s great about this podcast is that it shows how regular people can turn their life around simply by making a change on the inside. You don’t need a special set of circumstances to lead a fulfilling life. You can decide to have a successful fruitful life, no matter your circumstances. It doesn’t matter if things are going well for you or if you are (in David’s case) an over weight, addict that just went bankrupt.
I find the episodes very entertaining but I also find them inspirational and motivating.
Davis also has a book called Out There:A Story of Ultra Recovery. I haven’t read it yet but you can get a copy here:
If you listen to David’s story you’ll feel like you too can do the impossible.
